You’ll be breaking down mathematical business models and metrics through the use of analytics – including applied statistics, data mining, and data science techniques. When learning how to deliver BA data assets and data sets, we’ll make sure you can see how projects work from beginning to end. You’ll support us in ensuring these assets meet high standards in business requirement, solution design, solution development and testing.
